Question about Panasonic PV-GS320 Camcorder
I took several movies with my new Panasonic PV-GS320 camcorder and very easily uploaded them to my Mac using iMovie 7.1.2. Each time the upload process started automatically when plugged the USB cable into both the camera and the Mac and turned the camera's AC power on with the camera mode wheel set to the TAPE PLAYBACK position. Which according to both the camera's and iMovies' instructions is how things are supposed to work.
The camera seems to be working normally; I can easily review the recorded tape while looking through the eyepiece (and controlling the camera using the joystick); but iMovie no longer begins Importing (and the Mac trainers that I've talked to can't understand why). They've duplicated the problem on their in-shop Mac (which doesn't know that the camera's connected to it, either... thereby "proving" that the problem isn't with the computer since both computers function perfectly when iMovie is told to import from the built-in "iSight" camera (and they go a step further, saying that the Panasonic should show up as a choice on on the drop-down menu that shows the iSignt camera; but that it's not appearing there). They also note that the computer should issue a warning any time that contact between the camera and the computer is broken after the attempt-to-transfer process has been started (but that this doesn't always happen with either their computer or mine). Their present theory is that maybe "the software inside the camera probably needs to be rebooted."
I will greatly appreciate ANY assistance and/or suggestions, including anyone's input on how to get any help from ANYWHERE (very much including any sort of help from Panasonic, if it develops that their involvement is required)!
